Episode Summary

Teams: Law Dawgs vs. Pole Cats vs. Indian Hope Trick
Games: Ten Pin, Pit Ball, Rollercoaster, Sumo

The British Pole Cats' White Noise, a converted Sno-Cat (large tracked snow-removal machine), was always going to be a contender with its 3 tons of steel and 20 years of skimming snow. But was it a portent of doom when a suspension spring broke during testing? Luckily, the team had spent long stretches exiled in the Antarctic and reckoned they could fix anything, anywhere, anytime.
The Indian Hope Tricks' motorized rickshaw, Delhi Belly, looked nimble and included two gearboxes for maximum torque. But the lightness of the vehicle presented a huge question mark for the contact games. One-time "Bollywood" producer Vijay was hoping to script a happy ending, despite the heavy odds.
The Law Dawgs' mean machine, Impact Weapon, looked to be a formidable beast. In the build, the team used 150 pounds of weld and 180 pounds of gas. The result was a 2-ton monster, with over 300 horsepower, a maximum speed of 100 mph and strength enough to climb walls — it looked like it could crush anything!
Not at first. In Ten Pin, the Pole Cats' Rod showed that there's more to this game than brute force. His clever handling made up for White Noise's rigid turntable steering. Everyone knew that Delhi Belly was probably going to be too light for heavyweight bowling. Pitball was their best chance, until Impact Weapon stole their thunder and advanced to the final showdown.
In the Sumo battle royale, Mike's experience of chasing criminals at high speed got the better of Rod's years in the Antarctic. Or maybe it was Impact Weapon's bulletproof tires! "Our chief wants to keep Impact Weapon for his SWAT team," joked Mike. Or was he? Better watch out for those Deputy Dawgs in the semis!moreless
